The World Health Organisation has raised the pandemic alert phase for the outbreak of Mexican swine flu from Phase 4 to Phase 5, signaling that a pandemic is imminent. Even though there are no human cases of Mexican swine flu in Singapore as of 30 April 09, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has upgraded Singapore’s alert level from Yellow to Orange. This indicates that there is a real possibility that such cases may surface in Singapore and we must be prepared on all fronts to delay their spread to Singapore for as long as possible.
